Ph.D. Program Offers New Opportunities in Engineering, Applied Sciences

Abstract: Emerging engineering challenges and research questions of national and international stature are requiring an interdisciplinary approach to finding solutions. The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS) at Western Michigan University (WMU) currently offers five discipline-specific doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) programs that provide opportunities for faculty to work on research problems in classical fields of engineering. In this article, learn about the new Ph.D. program in the engineering and applied sciences (EAS) that provides the flexibility needed to address new and emerging interdisciplinary research areas that cut across several engineering and science disciplines. It also provides access to doctoral-level research activities to the 36% of our faculty in CEAS who did not have a mechanism to supervise Ph.D. students.
